Study Says Wearing Lots Of Makeup Makes You Seem "Fake"


New research has found that people view women who wear a lot of makeup as less genuine and empathetic than those who wear little or no makeup. Researchers from Brussels and the U.S. asked 1,000 people (split equally between genders and sexual orientation) to look at photos of women wearing varying degrees of makeup – and then describe them. Women with less makeup were described as "moral," "warm," and "capable." Women with heavy makeup were described as “unprofessional,” “cold,” “less capable,” and “immoral.” (Insider)
